How cool is this?

Author C.E. Murphy, whose blog I follow on LiveJournal, was asking on LJ for the name of a hymn for her protagonist to reference as encouragement in her new book, and she didn't want to use "Amazing Grace". Another poster suggested "Eternal Father, Strong to Save", and I commented on his post that this hymn would be a particularly good choice, if the hero was besieged in a maritime environment, since this is the Navy Hymn. And then I quoted the refrain, "Oh, hear us when we cry to thee, For those in peril on the sea."

Well, it turns out that this hymn was, in the author's own words, "PERFECTPERFECTPERFECT", so we're both getting an acknowledgement--in our real names--in the book. This may well be the coolest thing that has ever happened to me on LJ. :-)

One of my favorite hymn...I often choke up when singing it. Glad you were able to explain why it is so perfect for the book.
